Abstract
Utilization of wastes from agro industry is becoming increasingly important due to concerns of environmental impact. The goal of this work was to characterize and evaluate the ability of a novel Bacillus OU40T strain to produce Polyhydroxyalkanoates by using agricultural wastes, which was isolated from polluted water. The growth of isolate OU40T was assessed in mineral media containing glucose, starch, bagasse, whey and rice bran. Highest cellular copolymer content yielded 71.98% using rice bran, followed by starch(64.85%),whey(60.09%) ,bagasse(59.29%) and glucose(45.00%). The biomass production was fastest between 30-38h and obtained in the range of 3.0to3.5 g\L. The characterization of the polymer was carried out with FTIR, H1 NMR, 14C NMR, DSC, GPC, XRD and GC-MS. Biopolymers produced by strain OU40T had an average molecular weight 1,304 kDa to 2,332 kDa with melting point 155-160 Tm(oC) and percentage of crystallinity 40- 50%. This strain is producing PHBV copolymer with feed stocks without precursors. The cells were characterized by the presence of iso-C15: 0, iso-C16:0, iso-C17: 0 and C13:0 as the predominant fatty acids and MK-7 as the isoprenoid quinone. The DNA G+C content was 52.5%. Based on phenotypical, biochemical and genotypic investigations, the strain OU40T was assigned to the genus Bacillus.The 16S rRNA gene sequence is deposited in EMBL/Genbank under accession number FN 663629.The type strain is OU40T (=JCM 17287T=CCM 7835T =DSM 24141T). The strain utilized rice bran completely and CDW was noticed up to 3.012%. PHBV content was reported as 71.97% CDW with 84.40% HB units and 15.60%HV units. Till now production of PHBV copolymer with 15.60% HV units by utilizing rice bran as carbon source by Bacillus strain has not been reported.
